Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure....." - often misattributed to Nelson Mandela's Inaugural address - is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.
Marianne has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose. Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1986, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. Marianne also founded the Department of Peace Campaign, a grass roots campaign to establish a United States Department of Peace.
